Senior Blockchain Developer

AE Studio is a mid-sized, bootstrapped startup from California and we are looking for developers/designers to work from our office in Venice, CA or remotely.  Our team of developers, designers, data scientists, and other professionals of unusual wit and charm are building products to increase human agency daily (and for those on other continents, nightly).  We deploy the most recent technologies on behalf of startups, enterprise clients like Samsung and Berkshire Hathaway, and everyone in between. Our processes are highly productive and our work environment is highly awesome.

Do you have strong problem-solving skills?   How about self-management skills?  Have you penned a Gilbert and Sullivan parody?  If you can say yes to two of those three questions, we want to talk to you.

Additionally, we welcome entrepreneurial folks excited to contribute ideas and effort to our thriving skunkworks projects while polishing their client-facing social skillz.
